When you look for something you sometimes find something..else...

Yep. Lookin' for somethin' else..findin' somethin' better..

This old Singer Sewing Library book was just sitting in my basket of books...sitting there..waiting for me to notice it...



..so I did...notice it..3 old "How To" booklets in the covers..the covers are apart, but I thnk I can fix it with some book tape..
The images are great...and, ask anyone, I need to learn how to make a fluffy-ruffly dress...to go with my banana curls...to go to the ball....and you never know when I may need to fashion a fancy dress out of the velvet drapes.. and learn how to birth a baby...you know...to save Tara...

Oh yeah, that was Gone With the Wind..not me...

And I can just see Ella or Emily standing on an ottoman while I adjust the hem in their...slip??

...but I can't deny, these images are really cute!



I may need to actually learn how to sew...right after I learn to embroidery, and paint and write beautiful hand-written letter to everyone...

Oh yeah, and whistle through my fingers....That bucket list is growing and growing...



So, here are some images you can right-click on to use in your art work...


Have a great Tuesday...

-me
ps- what was I looking for in the first place?? ...I have no idea....

Wow what a find. I remember throwing out stuff like that when i cleaned out my mums belongings after she died. Perhaps i should have kept them.
I laughed at the word "Modern"

Oh this happens to me, too! I'm always getting off the track and ending up at the end of some bunny trail. But it can be fun!

You found a treasure. I love all old sewing machines and old sewing books.

I'm a new blogger, I found you through Shari. I love your Singer book. And thank you for all the pictures. They are all so sweet. I love lady pictures and roses. You will have to stop by and visit me. Hope you have a blessed day.
Smiles,
Pat

Although we have differences in culture, but do not want is that this view is the same and I like that!
